Making Health Care More Affordable in Virginia
This week, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed Delegate Mark Sickles’ Commonwealth Health Reinsurance Program into law. The legislation directs the State Corporation Commission to establish a reinsurance program which would reduce consumers’ health insurance premiums, fully offsetting premiums that average $650 per month. Small business owners would also benefit from stabilized budgets and lower costs, allowing them to invest more in their businesses and workers.
